This is our go-to place for family dinners. The food is always amazing, meat cooked perfectly, service is stellar and it's cozy and comfortable, not pretentious.

“One of the best in San Diego”
Reviewed December 13, 2013

I know that you can get a great steak at any Mortons. But the San Diego location on J street is one of the best. We are regulars at the Anaheim and Costa Mesa locations but we get very excited about dining at the J street Mortons. The service is impecable. The menu is perfect. And afterwards you are walking distance from the water or the gas lamp district.

“it is ok”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

great food no doubt. well, i just had a hard time understanding what someone across my table is saying because there was just too much background noise in a confined space filled with guests and my ear is not that young anymore. i never had such issue with other classy restaurants.

“Standard steakhouse fare”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Morton's San Diego holds nothing that is greatly surprising for patrons of this chain. It's a comfortable, traditional steak house. I was a bit annoyed by the intrusiveness of the service--how many times, really, do you need to be asked if everything is okay. Had lobster bisque (not hot enough) and a caesar salad (fine). My friend and I were not in an adventurous mood, and that is what we got--no surprises.

“Can't help but love it.”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

Other than the missing meat carts and a traditional menu there isn't any visible difference from the Landry's acquisition. Really fantastic food and service at a price. Dinner for 2 with a $60 prix fixe seasonal steak and seafood menu totaled out at $200 with tax and tip. A choice from 3 salads, a 6 oz filet with a choice from 3 seafood items, a side and choice from 3 desserts. My wife had the Shrimp Alexander and Creme Brulee and I had the crab cake and molten chocolate cake. We shared the sides of potato lyonais and grilled asparagus. Everything was perfect with the possible exception of cake which was a little overdone.
